Glasgow Sculpture Studios (GSS) is a leading centre for contemporary sculptural practice providing studios and production facilities that support a large community of artists to make work and develop their careers. Our extensive workshop facilities include metalwork, woodwork, ceramics, casting and spray, digital cutting and traditional processes. We support artists at all stages of their career and enable a range of audiences, participants and users to experience creative practice through our Learning & Engagement Programme. In addition, GSS provides a Fabrication Service working with a wide range of artists and design agencies to manufacture bespoke work to a high standard. This service generates important income to support our charitable purpose.

The Production Facility Manager (PFM) is a key role within the organisation, responsible for running our communal workshop facilities, and ensuring these meet a high standard of health and safety compliance. The PFM manages our small, dedicated team of technical staff to deliver the day-to-day operation of our workshops, ensuring safe access for our users and providing levels of technical advice and supported access. This team also supports the needs of our Artist Residencies and Learning & Engagement Programmes.

In tandem with this, the PFM will take forward GSS’ fabrication service which produces high profile international work for many of the UK’s leading artists. This service generates important income to support the organisation’s charitable purpose.  The PFM will develop the practical skills and knowledge held within the technical team and ensure that GSS delivers a high quality, profitable service.

This is an important opportunity for an individual with significant experience in fabrication and practical workshop management to contribute to the future development of one of the UK’s leading art-production facilities.
